[35] Aman is a Python programmer. He has written a code and created a binary file record.dat with employeeid, ename and salary. The file contains 10 records.
He now has to update a record based on the employee id entered by the user and update the salary. The updated record is then to be written in the file temp.dat. The records which are not to be updated also have to be written to the file temp.dat. If the employee id is not found, an appropriate message should to be displayed.
As a Python expert, help him to complete the following code based on the requirement given above:

import #Statement 1
def update_data():
rec={}
fin=open(“record.dat”,”rb”)
fout=open(“__
“) #Statement 2
found=False
eid=int(input(“Enter employee id to update their salary :: “))
while True:
try:
rec=__ #Statement 3
if rec[“Employee id”]==eid:
found=True
rec[“Salary”]=int(input(“Enter new salary :: “))
pickle.__ #Statement 4
else:
pickle.dump(rec,fout)
except:
break
if found==True:
print(“The salary of employee id “,eid,” has been updated.”)
else:
print(“No employee with such id is not found”)
fin.close()
fout.close()
